Ann Hood & Caroline Leavitt

A word from @drinkswithnick, who REALLY thinks you should come to the bookstore this Thursday night:

This Thursday, May 16th, at 7 pm, is going to be a special night in the store. Ann Hood and Caroline Leavitt will be discussing their new novels AND they will be joined in conversation with Jenna Blum. That’s three amazing writers all on one magnificent night!

Ann Hood, after her soaring memoir Fly Girl, returns with the meticulously beautiful novel, The Stolen Child. The story is haunting and lovely, tracing decisions made decades before in the tumult of war to the unraveling of the mysteries that followed.

Best-selling novelist Caroline Leavitt’s new novel is Days of Wonder, and like The Stolen Child, it’s a masterfully told story of the lengths we go to for redemption and is continually warm and compassionate with doses of humor throughout.

And Jenna Blum is not only one of our great writers – of heartbreaking novels and the inspiring memoir, Woodrow on the Bench – she also cofounded A Mighty Blaze with Caroline Leavitt! A Mighty Blaze is a gift to readers and writers alike as it puts a spotlight on the best writing and the best writers. Please join us this Thursday at 7 pm!
